We take a similar approach. Our Premium and Business shared hosting plans come with unlimited bandwidth and upwards of 100 GB in full SSD storage – more than enough to grow a personal or small business website.

What’s more, our tech stack is powered by LiteSpeed – the fastest web server in the industry. With HTTP/3 support and a self-healing infrastructure, your website will run at maximum speed.

Hostgator offers cPanel, the most popular web hosting control panel on the market. Known for its feature-richness and simplicity, it’s helped millions of users manage their hosting accounts.

At Hostinger, we aim to make website creation easier for everyone. That’s why we have developed hPanel, Hostinger’s custom control panel suitable for both beginners and advanced users. It comes in 17 languages and offers various one-click installers – from WordPress and PrestaShop to Joomla and Drupal.
